Did you know that... Jubera

 

It is a small town located in the valley of the river that gives it its name and bathes the town. It is currently part of the municipality of Santa Engracia de Jubera, together with the villages of San Bartolomé, San Martín, Santa Cecilia, Santa Marina, Bucesta and El Collado, but this has not always been the case. Jubera was until the mid-twentieth century the capital of the municipality, today is the second most populous nucleus. In the 9th century it is already mentioned in writings and it is at this time when it becomes a fortress. Doña Estefanía made a donation, in the 12th century, to the infant Don Fernando de Pamplona of which Jubera is a part. In the 13th century the Jubera Castle was handed over by Alfonso VIII de Catilla to Sancho de Navarra as a guarantee of the truce signed by both of them. During the 18th century the locality belonged to the Rodríguez Cisneros and until the province of Logroño was created in 1833 it formed part of the province of Soria.

To discover What to see in Jubera?

 

Jubera, with a mid-mountain landscape, is presided over by the castle, whose presence already appears in writings from the tenth century and speak of Muslim origins, at its feet, on the slope of the hill, and like a good subject takes refuge in the hamlet of the village. The parish church of San Nicolás conserves the walls and the Romanesque façade from the 13th century, as well as an altarpiece that belonged to the hermitage of Santiago, now in ruins. On the outskirts of the village two simple and beautiful hermitages claim the visitor's attention, that of San Miguel and that of the Virgen del Prado.

Festivities

 

The Jubera festivities are in honour of Santiago, but today they do not coincide with the 25th of July, on the 14th of September the fiesta of La Cruz was celebrated, with a pilgrimage to the hermitage of the Virgen del Prado, but today the fiesta has been moved to the last Sunday of August, on the 6th of December it celebrates its patron saint, Saint Nicholas, and on the 9th of March it is celebrated by Saint Gregory.

Traditions

 

Tradition has it that in medieval times Jubera was a village much visited by pilgrims who came here to implore the protection of the miracle saint St. Nicholas.

Curiosities

 

At the top of a steep hill and with the Jubera river at its feet, as if it were a moat, is the castle. The fortified enclosure consisted of three barreas or walls adapted to the orography of its situation and that today little by little are confused with the same mountain of which barbicans and torrecitas of defense lean out. Very close to the main entrance door to the enclosure there is a cave that connects with two existing holes inside the castle, whose silhouette is marked by cylindrical turrets and remains of a rectangular structure and two towers on the sides. Jubera Castle, Ausejo Castle and Clavijo Castle were the three fortresses that remained faithful to Castile in 1207. In the 15th century it belonged to Don Álvaro de Luna. In the first Carlist War the castle underwent a remodelling and the rectangular construction was added, the ruins of which can be seen at the top of the hill, a stamp that gives character to Jubera.
